Our Southern Italy Snapshots series is into full swing and we’ve stopped both in bella Calabria and hopped off of the mainland with a visit to world-famous Sicily. Today we are at the back of the boot in Puglia, a region that is quickly becoming a must-see destination in the bel paese.
Located east of Calabria in the “heel” of the boot, Puglia, sometimes called Apulia in English, is a long peninsula that juts into the Adriatic and Ionian seas and is home to the Castel del Monte and Alberobello UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Puglia’s six provinces are Bari, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Brindisi, Foggia, Lecce and Taranto. From north to south, here are five beautiful Flickr pictures of Puglia.
